October Best of collection …*Monthly inspirations

October is not one of my favourite period of the year…Actually every year in this season I feel a little bit of sadness, with the ended summer and the beginning of cold and foggy days, which are shorter, you go out from the office and outside is already dark, so you start spending more time at home, in a cozy and warm tracksuit, instead than in the open-air…I think that the falling leaves and the grey sky are so gloomy-instead than fascinating, and a month ending with a celebration of death and spirits like Halloween (even if it’s NOT and Italian tradition!) is so sad, that I think very often: Why do I not live in a place is always in summer, like in Brazil, or maybe just in the South of Italy?? 
However I have to say this October has been so full of interesting events I somehow forgot melancholy thanks to all the things I had to do…
ITA Ottobre non è tra i miei mesi preferiti…In realtà ogni anno questo periodo mi mette un pò tristezza, con l’estate alle spalle e l’arrivo di giornate fredde e nebbiose, e più corte, esci dall’ufficio che è già buio, e quindi si sta più tempo a casa, in una comoda tuta calda, anzichè all’aria aperta…Trovo che le foglie che cadono e il grigiume del cielo siano malinconici più che affascinanti, e che un mese che termina con una festa che celebra morti e spiriti quale Halloween (che tra l’altro non è una tradizione italiana!) sia piuttosto triste, tanto che mi ritrovo spesso a chiedermi perchè non vivo in un posto caldo tipo in Brasile o basterebbe anche solo al sud Italia?
Comunque devo dire che questo mese di Ottobre è stato per me così pieno di impegni ed eventi che con tutte le cose che ho avuto da fare non c’è stato tempo per la malinconia…
